anomalisa trailer

There are still two months remaining in 2015, but I find it hard to believe that I will see a better movie than Anomalisa before the year is out. Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson‘s stop-motion animated drama is an unflinchingly real and achingly human masterpiece. It’s a beautiful recreation of what is feels like to fall in love and a bitter, black-hearted portrait of despair and mundane desperation. It’s about as perfect as movies can get. And it’s done entirely with puppets.

Hateful Eight poster

We’ve got months to go before Christmas, and I’m in no hurry to see that time evaporate, but the promise of a new Quentin Tarantino film does make the end of the year seem pretty attractive. Now here’s a new The Hateful Eight poster to tease the tense battle of wills Tarantino has created to send off 2015 in style.

You probably know the film’s cast by now — Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Channing Tatum, and Zoe Bell — and that Tarantino and cinematographer Robert Richardson shot the movie in 70mm.

This poster shows John Ruth and Daisy Domergue, the shackled-together characters played by Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason Leigh. As the layout suggests, this is just be the first of a set of images presenting the full collection of eight hateful characters.

Hateful Eight images

Quentin Tarantino‘s new film The Hateful Eight sounds in many ways like a return to his roots: it’s nearly a closed-room argument, with an ensemble cast battling out their differences in, if Tarantino’s reputation is anything to go by, increasingly violent ways. That ensemble cast is perhaps better than ever, with Tim Roth providing a link to Tarantino’s debut Reservoir Dogs, and Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Michael MadsenBruce Dern, with a small turn from Channing Tatum.

And then there’s Kurt Russell, who looks more awesome than ever in this role — and that’s saying a lot, considering his history. See him and just about everyone else in new Hateful Eight images below. Read More »
